Hi I'm having a strange problem with captions - certain letters have a spike which extends over the text edge. I can't get rid of it even if I try changing fonts

Does anyone know how to fix this? I've attached an image spikes on text.jpg

The same way you added them: text edge.

Or use a more common font.

There's no option to change the stroke on the text edge in captions

Please post a screenshot of the captions panel. I have no problem changing edges for Open Captions.

On the other hand, the "spikes" you see is a known issue. Reported here for closed captions:

Edge rendering issue on close captions – Adobe video & audio apps

What specific dot version of PR? There have been a number of function changes and bug fixes in recent versions.

I don't understand how this post is marked as solved. Turning down the width of the edge is not the solution, it will make the spike just smaller and at the same time the edge becomes almost inexistent. I've tried multiple fonts and in the basic ones (the ones we need to use) there's always these spikes. I've all the posts related to this and there's no solution, it's quite frustrating since those spikes are very unprofessional looking. I'm using open captions on premiere pro cc 2018. Anyone actually found the solution? Thanks

There is no solution yet. Staff report a few days ago that this is under review for a future release. Upvote here:

https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/34371019-edge-rendering-iss...

 

There was an improvement for some instances of this problem in 13.0.0 (shortly after the original post in this thread), but not all. The best you can do is a combination of font and edge. The last I tested it, I found for Arial, font size 44, spike is gone at edge = 2. Comic Sans, edge = 5.)

This dosen't solve the problem with the edge of the captions but I found a workaround that really worked for me: I turned down the edge at 0 and after that, I applied a drop shadow on the captions layer. That also gives you a better control over the look and feel of the caption. I hope it helps.

But how do you apply a drop shadow on the captions layer...? I don't see this option.

Might be because you chose the wrong type of captions. Try to create
another one, there's open, closed, and also subtypes of each
